The heavy Iron box was almost demolished, and a number of windows in the office broken as a result of the explosion. It is probable that one of the burglars was Injured, as bloodstains were found around the office. From the appearance of the place, with a desk and chairs broken, the police believe the burglars were seriously hurt. The noise of the explosion was heard some distance away, and ^ number of persons who live near were awakened, but so far as known nobody saw the men around the building or escaping. It was about 4 that the safe was dyna- in the sides and celling of the office, while .several windows were blown out. The plaster paris filling was strewn everywhere. After the crash the burglars broke open the small door to the inside of the safe with a hammer, and carried off the money in the box. They left behind them a drill and hammer, which were evidently stolen from some blacksmith shop. Frank Richards, tile crossing tender of the narrow-gage railroad at Pleasant st, put to rout last night two men who he thinks were trying to rob him and get possession of tools stored in the gatehouse and which could be used by safe robbers. The description of the pair furnished by Richards confirms the opinion of the police that the men went to the gale- mited, and a few moments before pa- J house for the purpose of getting Trills and liars to be used later. About ll Richards was seated in the gatehouse when tho door opened and two men entered. One of them asked tor a match, and as the gate tender was placing his hand In his pocket to accommodate him tile other stepped quickly to tim lantern hung on tho wall, and which furnished the only light In tho place, and extinguished it. Richards jumped to Ids feet, and, seizing an iron bar which stood near, struck ut the man The bar descended on the head of one man, staggering him. Then his companion grabbed him and they disappeared in the darkness. The gate tender followed them up, but as a train was coming live was obliged to return and lower the gates, and the men got away. He sa.vs that one of the men was about & feet ll and the other feet 4. Both wore dark caps and the former had a light-colored overcoat. trolman Burrlll had tried the door of tho office. It Is believed that the burglars were inside at the time, and had probably drilled tile safe, and were awaiting the departure oj the policeman before igniting the fuse."' The combination on the safe was knocked off and a hole drilled through. The cracks were stuffed with soap, and when the explosion came it was with such force that the door was wrenched almost trom the hinges, while it was cracked and bent completely out of chape. The soap was spattered around the room, and small pieces of steel imbedded Pfatfs Is a muscle builder. It aids digestion and gives one a good appetite. THE WEATHER.

Morning reports from foreign stations WOODS HOLE, Jan 18—With great fields of drift ice in Vineyard sound and on Nantucket shoals, the rivers and harbors along the coast frozen solidly, the bay one solid mass from here to the steamer dock at New Bedford, a northwest gale sweeping these shores and the mercury at zero, there is every indication and grave fears that another ice embargo will by tomorrow cut off all communication by boat with Nantucket and stall all shipping through the sound and lr. Buzzards bay. The steamer from Nantucket, which fought her    way over    the    shoals    to W oods Hole tills morning, has started for that Island, but lf she succeeds in getting to lier dock there It is doubtful if she will be able to leave tomorrow. The harbor at Nantucket, is again frozen, and the channel inside the breakwater    Is filled    with    drift    Ice, which gave    the steamer all    she could do to make her way on the run up tills morning. Officers of the steamer say that they ran into an ice pack that was at least live miles    in length,    and    varied    In width from one to two miles. It was being carried along at a rapid rate by the wind and tide. and it is said nothing can prevent it from being swept into Nantucket harbor save a change of wind, which did not seem likely before tomorrow at the earliest. One of the crew said that the ice in the channel inside the breakwater at Nantucket was so thick that the sharp prow of tile boat was dented and dulled In cutting through it. The ice made very rapidly at Nantucket last night, where the thermometer registered zero and a number of passengers who had planned to remain there until the middle of the week took passage on the boat rather than risk being stalled there. The steamer resembled an Iceberg as she plowed her way along this morning. The spray which had been thrown over her bow had formed a thick coating of ice o nher deck, and her sides und paddle-boxes were encased in it. In docking here the vessel parted on of tho largo hawsers, which delayed her landing passengers for a short time. 'The steamer Uncatena left here for New Bedford this morning, going out into Vineyard sound and thence through 'Quicks Hole. There are some doubts of her' being able to make the trip across Buzzards buy, which is packed with ice in a line extending from Uncatena island to the dock at her destination. Great fields of drift ice are Bing carried through the channel at Quicks Hole, and it is believed that the wharf there will be demolished by it. Already the ice has carried a large section of the wharf away, and what Is left 1b being twisted and torn by the ice floes. The schooners, tugs and barges that passed westward through the sound yesterday were compelled to turn back by the gale, and are at anchor at the Vineyard and off Nobska. BIGAMOUS MARRIAGE. London Justice's Opinion of Mrs Maud’s Union with Dan Hanna of Cleveland. LONDON, Jan 18—Justice Jeune. in the divorce division of tile high court of justice, today granted Maj Walter de Saumarez Maud a divorce fnorn his wife, on the ground that her marriage to Daniel R. Hanna of Cleveland. O, was bigamous. The Mauds were married at New York. April Ii), 18D7. While Maud was fighting in South Africa his wife obtained a NEWTON, Jan 18—“I have no official information with regard to my possible appointment as appraiser of the port of Boston, and only know what I have seen in the morning papers. The position has not as yet been offered to me. lf it is, and I accept, I shall do so from a sense of duty. When a man has followed one profession for 17 years he dislikes to give it up, and I should not do so unless I thouglit that the call offered an opportunity, under the existing conditions, for an honorable record.” Such was the statement made this morning by J. Linzee Snelling of this city, assistant superintendent of the Boston & Albany railroad, when seen regarding the story that he is to succeed Alfred W. Brown as appraiser of merchandise at the port of Boston, as told exclusively by the Globe this morning. Further than the above statement Mr Snelling declined to discuss the matter until he had received official confirmation of the published dispatch from Washington. While tho selection of a railroad man to fill the office of appraiser seems strange to many, Mr Snelling’s wide experience in traffic management and the handling of foreign freight contracts over the Vanderbilt lines, makes him in the eyes of his friends, just the man needed at the present time at file Boston customhouse. This is particularly true, in view of the apparent lecessity for tile Introduction of up-to-date methods of conducting the affairs of the port. Mr Snelling is a native of Boston, where he was born Jan 3, 1864. His early education was received in the public schools of that city and at the age of 39 lie entered Harvard university, graduating with the class of 87. Tin desire to adopt i ailroad life as a profession evinced itself in his early years, and the year previous to ins ! graduation nom Harvard he entered lit! employ cf the New York & New England railroad as a. clerk in the ! freight cashier’s office at South Boston. After remaining there for several months ne accepted a similar position ! with the Boston & Albany road.

WASHINGTON, Jan IS—The senate committee on foreign relations today directed Senator Cullom to report the Panama treaty with three amendments. The republican members voted for tho treaty. Only two democrats, Morgan and Money, were present. The former voted against the treaty and Mr Money stated that he had not yet had time to consider it, as it was the first meeting of the committee he had been able to attend. The three amendments relate to sani- Boston building trades’ council has called a special meeting for next Friday night at its headquarters at 8 Bennett st to take action regarding the statements made by Pres Eliot of Hair vard in his speech at Brooklyn last Friday night. The call for the meeting, which is made by five of the 33 unions of the council, declares that the meeting is called for the purpose of requesting Pres Eliot to retract or else prove his statements concerning the Boston building trades’ unions. The reference Pres Eliot made to th* Boston building trades’ unions was: “The building trades’ unions in Boston demand that they decide who shall get certain jobs; that the specifications be submitted for their approval first; that the unions get a certain amount for the awarding of the work to certain contractors. Then the walking delegate ‘gets Ills piece. “And if at any time a new combination springs up in their respective union, a like amount of money must be paid to them as to the old clique; and if such is not forthcoming work is stopped and the contracted is left with the building unfinished until he accedes to the union’s demand.” REID HEADING FOR WILDERNESS.

SURPRISE ATHOLD FORT” Yet Employes There Admit that Mr Snelling is Especially Well Qualified to b| Appraiser. The announcement in this morning’s Globe that J. Linzee Snelling of Newton was to succeed Chief Appraiser Brown at the Boston customhouse was the all-interesting topic, among tho officials in the “old fort” today. The news that Mr Snelling was to have the place came as a sort of surprise in view of the speculation of late regarding the availability of a number of men for the position. At no time was Mr Snelling's name mentioned among the likely condidates, yet among the customhouse men this forenoon it was admitted he was especially well qualified for the position by reason of his training on tile Boston & Albany railroad and knowledge of merchandise values. Collector Lyman when seen by reporters this morning refused positively to discuss the appointment of Mr Snelling. In answer to direct questions he refused either to affirm or deny the appointment aa reported from Washington.    I However, the collector was good natured and gave out tho fact that he had early in the day made the following minor appointments. Edward B. Henry of Everett and Harry M. Keith of Somerville as clerks, arid Owen P. McKenna as a messenger. These appointments are in the classified civil service lists, and the lucky men are well spoken of by those who know them. GIVEN TheTTmIT. iii      rn.

Counsel for Bates Says Latter Has Mania for Books—Charge of Arson Still Hangs Over Him. The Boston public library will soon recover the copy of Hawthorne’s "Fanshawe,” stolen by Frederick H. Bates on Friday of last week. The work was a very rare one and sold at auction for $400. It is said to be the only one of the edition, which was issued for private sale, in existence, with the exception of one copy which is supposed to oe in the possession of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s son, Julian, who is still living In New York. The. book was so precious that it was not permitted to be taken from me public library building. Only persons who were vouched for could take it to the tables in the reading room for Inspection. It was obtained in the reading room on Friday of last week by Bates, w’ho is declared to have given the name of Caleb Benson to the clerk when ‘lie received it for a temporary inspection. Bates iii accused of walking out with tho book. Mr Benson, who lives in Roxbury, was seen by the police, they having been called into the case as soon as it was found that the book was missing. He said that he had not asked for the book, and that the name signed to the card must be forged. Tile police described the man who had obtained the valuable volume. Mr Benson is an uncle of Bates. He said he thought from the description that perhaps it was Bates who had taken the book.

FOUND ON BATTERY ST. Ehciion Crmmissionsrs Seek Aid at PenMon-.q Headquarters. Handsomely Dressed Boy is Now at Chardon-St Home. A pretty little boy, about 4 years old. and handsomely dressed, was found near the Battery-st station of the ele rated railway Saturday night by a patrolman of the harbor police, and was taken to the Chard ort-st home for safekeeping, as he couldn't tell who he was. Ho tries to tell his name, and it sounds something like Albert McGUnch-ey, and from what he says the police think his home is in East Boston, but the police of division 7 have been unable to locate his people. This afternoon headquarters gave the reporters a bulletin about the boy in the hope his people will be found. Evidence of the unusual care which the authorities are taking to purify tile jury lists was furnished at police headquarters today when clerks from the election commissioners’ office appeared in Chief Inspector Watts’ office with lists of names drawn for jury duty, and asked for police help In going over them to see that no man with a record got by the prosecuting attorneys arid found a seat in the Jury box. The name of every man drawn to serve on the grand or trial juries is being carefully looked up, and anyone so drawn who is found to have a criminal record will be debarred from jury service. It has happened heretofore than men with police pasta have been drawn and served as jurors, and now the police, the election commissioners and the district attorney’s office are working in harmony to see that all such ^en are kept off the Juries.
